Glen Eira College Parents Association
Welcome To The Glen Eira Parents Association
The Glen Eira College Parents Association (the Association or more commonly known as GECPA) is an informal and friendly group of parents and carers of students at Glen Eira College (GEC). We’re here to support the school community.
We know that you want your child to get the most out of their time at GEC – academically, socially and as a means of setting them up for their future.
Did you know that researchers have found a link between parental involvement in the school and academic achievement?
That’s a great reason to get involved with GECPA.
Donate your time and experience.
- We act as a link between our parent community and GEC.
- We represent an organised, parent perspective.
- We provide parents and carers of students at GEC with a voice.
- We support the school community by hosting events and sharing information.
- We are involved in fundraising for the school.
Plus – joining GECPA is a great way to meeting other parents and carers at the school who share your enthusiasm.
We meet once a month. All parents and carers of students at GEC are welcome to attend our meetings. Your level of involvement is entirely up to you. Even part-time involvement will be greatly appreciated. Contact us for meeting dates or to get involved: firstname.lastname@example.org
We communicate with parents and carers via email, newsletters, Facebook and Instagram. Email is the easiest way for you to find out what is happening. Please click here to subscribe
Friend-rising/Social Groups: We have a Walk and Talk social group, which meets on Tuesday evenings (weather permitting) at 7:30pm at the corner of Crosbie and Murrumbeena Roads at Duncan Mackinnon Reserve. If you’re in the area…
Fundraising Events: Each year, we run a small number of events to support the school community, enable families to meet and socialise together, and raise funds for the school.
These events include:
- A second-hand uniform stall – either before the start of the school year or when sufficient donations are received.
- Refreshments at intermission of GEC annual productions.
- A movie night, typically once every two years.
- A Trivia Night, also usually every second year.
- Sausage and cake stalls during election years.
Again, please contact us and get involved. We would love to have you onboard!
We are active members of Parents Victoria. See their website for great resources: Parents Victoria – Parents Victoria
